Possible neutral safety switch failed if its an automatic, or inhibitor switch if standard trans. Does it have an alarm ? Did you get the ign switch in properly, if its the style that mounts down low on the column,loosen the screws and slide it back toward steering wheel and recheck for start

There are many possible issues that can cause the problem you are experiencing. A bad starter, a bad ignition switch, relay, wiring circuit for ignition / cranking.

If you are mechanically inclined, I recommend you begin to test all components to narrow your possible problem.

My key wont turn in the ignition. it is locked up. My key wont turn in the ignition.


Try turning the steering wheel back and forth as you try to turn the key. I know it should be locked but sometimes kinda using a little force will unlock the ignition switch. I hope this helped you good luck.

My ignition switch wont turn got a new 1 cant get the old 1 off what can i do


Hello woodsvincent...The GM ignition switches are designed to be removed with the key in the on position. The lock tumblers in the old switch are likely stuck and/or worn, and if your key itself is worn that makes it worse. Disconnect the negative battery cable, and try another key thats in better shape if possible. Spray a little lubricant in the switch, wiggle and work the key and see if you can get it to turn to the on position...if you can, leave it there!! The switch can be replaced if you can't get it to turn, but it's a lot more labor intensive.
Let me know how it goes...and i will further advise.
Good luck and i hope this helps...

My Spare Key Won't Start My Car


ok well here's the thing. This key has not been used before. The keys are cut to the specs of the ignition so they may be undercut so to speak. I know on my car i can turn it upside down it will work. But on the other hand it could just possibly be a back up for when you lock your keys in your car (not likely but it's still possible). You can keep putting your key in and out a bunch of times and **** the steering wheel back and forth as you turn the key to get it used to the ignition switch. See if that works and if not i will see what i can come up with in the meantime for this exact car.

Ignition key wont turn with either of the keys I have


Is the steering wheel locked hard over to one side? On some vehicles it is just about impossible to turn the key with the wheel locked hard over. If it is, take some pressure off the steering whell lock by turning the wheel in the locked direction and try to turn the key.
